How do you measure your success?

This year I am lighter than I have "ever" been - (since beginning my getting better journey)...
I am fitter than I have ever been - full stop...
I reckon I'm healthier - my back went - and the recovery was in days - rather than weeks and months (was once paralysed and couldn't walk properly for about a year)...
I'm stronger - physically, mentally and emotionally...

I have practiced - protein heavy diets - juicing diets - scheduled timing eating - journaling - not journaling - my fitness pal - rejoined a gym - running - walking - dumbells - pull ups - book reviewing - raw food - vegetarian stuff - cooking - eating fantastic cakes - coffee / no coffee and probably a few other things...

What has worked for me is keeping a journal - and then just changing things when I get a bit bored - principles rather than rules - and learning how to eat emotionally and acknowledge that occasionally I use food to cheer me up - rather than tobacco, alcohol and recreational drugs... And that's OK - as long as I'm aware of this - and count my calories / carbs / times or whatever my current measurement is...

The quickest and most successful weight loss sprint this year was juicing for 10 days - lost 14lbs - and I've kept them off - happy days...

Anyway, wishing everyone a wonderful Xmas and looking forward to next year...

Until next time
+Mark
